One Village, One Book

One Village, One Book book club at Montclair Library

Join us to celebrate the Montclair library’s 90th birthday in 2020 by reading six books set in Oakland! Books will be selected from a variety of genres and eras so you’re sure to find something you’re interested in. We’ll get to learn more about our city, meet some neighbors and discuss what we’ve read.

To see what books we’re considering and vote on book selections, go here.

Meetings will be on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30pm every other month. Come to one discussion, a few or all six! No pre-registration or year-long commitment is required.
